Celtics Land 6th Pick at NBA Draft Lottery

Celtics ping pong ball

The ping pong balls have failed the Celtics once again. Heading into Tuesday night’s lottery, the Celtics held the fifth-best shot at the the No. 1 pick (better than 10%), and had a realistic shot at landing in the top three (33%), where franchise-altering players Joel Embiid, Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker can be had.

Instead of landing a top-three pick for the first time since 1997, the Celtics drew the 6th selection.

According to NBADraft.net, the Celtics are slotted to take 6-foot-9 power forward Noah Vonleh, a freshman out of Indiana. Vonleh grew up in Haverhill.

What really matters is if the Timberwolves are willing to trade for the No. 6 pick as the key piece in a package for Kevin Love. We shall see…

The Cavs, meanwhile, held a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery but will pick 1st overall for the third time in four years (how fair is that?).

Following Cleveland is Milwaukee (2), Philadelphia (3), Orlando (4), Utah (5) and Boston (6). The Lakers will pick seventh.
